If Ross Douthat had access to the Congressional Budget Office's (CBO) projections that show Social Security will be fully solvent for almost three decades, with no changes whatsoever, and that it could pay more than 80 percent of scheduled benefits after that date for the rest of the century (which is more than current retirees receive), then he would not have attacked President Obama for not having a plan to overhaul Social Security. Therefore, we can conclude that he doesn't have access to CBO's projections.
